You won’t have made the most of your mountain holiday until you have done an alpine hike through our impressive mountain landscape.

The top of the lift marks the starting point for a variety of hiking trails and loops (Difficulty: middle), in a breath-taking landscape. A gravel path guides the way to Monte della Neve (3000 Meters): from here you will find yourself captivated by the Vallaccia valley – where the words ‘calm’ and ‘beauty’ take on new meaning.

Or you can go toward the Passo d’Eira, to the Crap della Paré: you will reach the summit cross in less than an hour where you will be struck by the panorama of Livigno and its lake.

Crap dala Parè Livigno

A longer but also easier trail leads to "la via dei baitel": in 2 hours you will have crossed the entire Mottolino slope, over Baitel dal'Ables and Baitel dali Fema: small mountain huts which were used by those tending the mountain pastures.

Further along, one reaches Valle delle Mine: where a snack of local specialities waits. Don’t forget to leave an entry in the guest book.

The landscape in the valley of Livigno is a real experience: the memories will follow you home, together with the calm and stillness, which will surely recharge your batteries.
